Poll: Gore widens lead; Dole gains on Bush

By Keating Holland/CNN

WASHINGTON (May 3) -- Al Gore has gained ground in his race against Bill Bradley for the Democratic presidential nomination next year, while George W. Bush has lost some support to Elizabeth Dole on the GOP side, according to the latest CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

In mid-April Bradley won support from 34 percent of all Democrats nationwide; now he is the choice of just 23 percent of them.


Also:

Congress should have authority over U.S. involvement in Kosovo
Violence in the media should be regulated

Bush is still the Republican front-runner, but support for him among Republicans nationwide has dropped from 53 percent in mid-April to 42 percent now. Dole appears to have picked up most of that support, going from 16 percent three weeks ago to 24 percent now.

No other GOP hopeful gained or lost more than a single percentage point since the last time the question was asked on a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll conducted April 13-14.

Bush continues to beat Gore in a hypothetical head-to-head match-up, as he has in previous polls in March and April.

The survey of 1,014 adult Americans, including 492 Democrats and 411 Republicans, was conducted April 30-May 2. Margin of sampling error is indicated with each question.
